3-Story Venue Planned For 2nd Avenue South

CREATED Jan 27, 2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A three-story venue has been planned for 2nd Avenue and Broadway in downtown Nashville.

The plans announced Monday by Principal Broker Brandon Kuvara with C. B. Ragland Company call for an approximately 20,000 square foot building at 120 2nd Avenue South. The first two floors would offer approximately 7,500 square feet each, with the third offering 5,200 square feet and a rooftop deck overlooking Riverfront, LP Field, and the new amphitheater set to be built on 1st Avenue South.

"We have an opportunity to tailor this building to the right tenant, which we envision as a three-story entertainment destination that fits the historic neighborhood perfectly, but also offers the modern systems and conveniences to the tenant," Kuvara said. "You couldn't ask for a better location or venue, and with all of the recent development in the area and the buzz around downtown Nashville, the timing is right."

The building could become home to retails and restaurants, or music halls and other entertainment venues. Another option would be that one tenant uses the entire space.

"We've designed the building to accommodate a number of concepts, but the idea is to have six-foot windows that open up to the river on one side, Broadway on another and Second Avenue on the third front," he said. "The elevator and stair systems were designed to make sense for any of these options, along with the latest electrical, plumbing and other engineered systems that are designed for practicality and efficiency, including the potential for a green roof. We haven't named the building yet because we want the future tenants to be a part of honing that identity."

The lot was said to be one of the largest in the Broadway Historic District at 80 feet wide. Plans call for the building to nod to history through its architecture, 20-foot ceilings and all-brick construction. The historic structure that was located on this property burned in the mid1980s.
